Internationalization Options in AngularJS and Salesforce: Part 3 – Language Conversions

In part one of this series, we covered how to leverage some of the settings from the user’s profile in Salesforce to control the locale settings in angularJS. In part two, we extended that example to include Time Zones and looked at other options for displaying data in the logged in user’s time zone. In this post, we will again leverage the profile settings of the logged in user to display the page content (titles, descriptions, etc. – not data contained in Salesforce objects) in the language selected by the user. We cover two options in this post: how to do the language conversion in angular and how to do it using the Salesforce translation workbench. The POC code leverages the second approach.

Internationalization Options in AngularJS and Salesforce: Part 2 – Time Zone Conversions

In part one of this series, we covered how to leverage some of the settings from the user’s profile in Salesforce to control the locale settings in angularJS. In this post, we will build off that initial example and extend it to cover time zone conversions. This will enable us to see all the data presented to the logged in user in that user’s time zone. This example could be further extended to allow the logged in user to see the data presented in another user’s time zone. An example of this is if an activity, task, or event needs to be assigned to a user in a different time zone, it is created in their time zone, not the time zone of who has created the activity. As long as the correct time zone is pulled from their profile, the new task is created in their time zone using the techniques outlined below.
